WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — After a nearly 20 year career, News 18's longtime anchor Gina Quattrocchi announced Tuesday she is leaving the airwaves for now.


Gina is a Lafayette native and graduate of McCutcheon High School. She graduated from Purdue in 1998 and began with WLFI that same year.

She started as a morning live shot reporter, and spent a few years as a regional reporter and anchor of News 18 This Morning and News 18 at Noon.

Over the years, Gina has anchored News 18 at 5, 6 and 11. She's spent much of her career covering local crime, city government and school boards.

In 2016, Gina moved back to mornings as the anchor of News 18 This Morning.

"I've spent nearly half of my life at WLFI," said Quattrocchi. "Greater Lafayette is my home and I will always be thankful for my time spent at WLFI. I can't thank the viewers enough for allowing me to come into your homes for so many years."

Gina and her family will continue to call West Lafayette home.

You can watch Gina's farewell show Wednesday morning.
